Finally all components are here... 7700k, Asus Maximus IX Formula, 2x Titan X Pascal, 16Gb (8Gb x 2) G.Skill TridentZ 4133Mhz, 2x 2Tb Samsung 850 Pro, 512Gb Samsung 850 Pro and a Hex Gear R80 case...

 

It's gonna take lots of time and work to put everything together... I'm aiming for at least a 5.0GHz overclock...  :smile:

Yes sir!!! Delid is a must in this build... I'll post the pictures... too bad that my case came with some parts missing... I already send a couple of emails to the seller to get those parts...

Lol... believe me... I had to close my eyes when I was about to click over the "Order now" button a couple of times... but.... this is my hobby... usually I upgrade my pc every 3 years...

Sweet! But I think I need a 2 TB SSD for my next build given the amount of Orbx regions loaded...my current 1 TB SSD is already 750G and that machine is pretty much dedicated to FSX.

Same here... at this moment I'm using 2x 512Gb 840 Pro in a raid 0 setup and running out of space really fast (P3D and FSX)...

At this moment the case looks complete but there are some parts missing (behind the side panels) but it's still usable...

Going to be an awesome project. 

 

Keep posting pics of the build process, it's going to be of great interest.  :smile:

A little advance... :)

As you may notice... now the case is all black...

The next step is to delid the I7 7700K, install the CPU water block, install the SSDs and start with the cable management in the back...

Looking nice, very nice.  :smile:

 

Interesting how the PSU is mounted in that case. Or is this your mod to make room for the huge rad?

No mod... That's the standard case config....

Nice looking build.

 

Having used several of the water cooling components I see in your pictures, I wanted to offer some advice.

 

1) If you hear any strange rattle coming from your system after you build it, check those fans.  The Corsair SP120 doesn't like being mounted in horizontal orientation, especially upside-down.  The fans I saw in the top of your system are not mounted upside-down so that's good, but it also doesn't make much sense from an airflow perspective as basically you're trying to pull air from above your system back down into it.  

2) Carefully monitor the G1/4" ports on your UT60 radiators for signs of leaking.  I had one that wasn't machined properly (factory defect) and it leaked and bled my system dry.  I've stopped using that series of radiators since.  

3) Be extremely cautious when de-lidding your Kaby Lake CPU.  The package on these newer chips (Skylake and Kaby Lake) is extremely thin compared to prior generations and is prone to bending.  I bent the first chip Kaby Lake I de-lidded but not to the point of damaging it.

Thanks for the advise...

1) Do to bad (or good) luck I had an issue with the psu sleeved cables (the box label says blue but they are white) I'm switching the fans for the newer SP120 RGB that match the white cables... and now my case is all black... no more blue face...

 

2) My current build use 2 alphacool UT60 360 and no issues there... I already flush both radiators and did not find any leaks...

 

3) I'm not using the cutter or the vice method... Last build I use the vice method and wasn't pretty but it worked... and worked great... this time I'll try something new... the de-lid and re-lid kit from RockItCool...

Nice build,

i use tool from Der8uer , when clean up after delidd , dont clean away the black intel silicon on the CPU pcb,

clean the IHS.

when applay liquid ultra or Pro line up on the black on the pcb , i dont reglue put the package in the socket ,loose the retaintion screw ,the middle one to about one tread left . clamp down and last tight the screw.

 

Finally a have a dedicated Sim PC , have some leftowers.

Chasssi Fractal Define , 1000w FSP Psu, 2 x 980 , Z170 Mobo Asus Maximus VIII Extreme, 2 x16 4133 Galax limited edition, Cpu 7700k delidded i like PRO some prefer Ultra, the cpu is good no golden sample but high over the normal.

Cooling NZXT X61 Kraken tuned the fans from a profile in the Mobo max rev is 60% , kraken fans can be loud.

here is one of the RogRealbench Stresstests a did an finaly a 3.5hour flight with FsLabs A320.

Hi people...

 

It's time for another update...

As I said last time... the psu cables that were supposed to be blue are white...  So I change the blue sleeves of the pump to white... and looks even better... :yahoo:

The plug at the top of the reservoir is a white led... In previous pictures you may see 4 bottles of Mayhems Pastel Blue... guess what... I'll switch to distilled water... now I have 4 bottles of Pastel without any purpose... :Hmmmph:

Well people... This is how things went...


DSC_2115.jpg

 

First... draining the loop and removing the two Titans X(P) from my old pc...

DSC_2117.jpg

 

Sorry for not taking pictures when I was bending and cutting the PETG tubes... It's kind of hard at first but at the end is very easy... What you see here is 50% precise measurement using a ruler and 50% eye ball measurement...

This is where you put all your money on the line... the LEAK TEST!!!!... :ampun:

DSC_2129.jpg

After a HUGE success and connecting all cables in the back.. Disaster struck... This is really painful...

When I removed the Titans from the old pc I had to put the chrome back plates to make them look good in the new pc... To put the back plate you have to remove 6 screws and replace them with the ones inside the back plate box... The first one went OK but the second had 4 stuck screws... to make things worst those screws were inside another screw with a nut head... I look for a mini wrench to keep the nut from moving and when I was trying to take them out I heard a "crack" sound... my heart stopped for a minute but I did not see any damage... When I put everything together and turn on the pc guess what... as soon I click on apply to activate SLI I got all types of video corruption (It was really bad)... What I scream next I can't put that here... :)

Long story short... I wasted a Titan X Pascal... yes... a $1200 + shipping monster video card... :(

After trying all sorts of possible solutions for the corruption I gave up and remove the Titan... This is how it looks...

One thing about my personality is that I don't take a NO as an answer in this kind of things... so I ordered a third Titan... YES... i have three Titan X Pascal boxes...

That's my story....

Regarding performance.... Thanks to the de-lid the cpu at 100% the highest I've seen is 55C... Overclocking was a breeze... at the moment is running at 5.1GHz with a vCore of 1.33v (I can use a lower voltage (1.31v) but for stability purposes I'm fine with 1.33v)...

Kaby Lake is a monster with P3D... even with 100% traffic at KLAX (ORBX-AS2016-ENVTEX) I have a fluid performance... very smooth.... FPS is not a problem anymore but VAS is another story...

 

Have a nice day people!...
